What’s a Copyright Licence Agreement?
A Copyright Licence Agreement is an agreement under which a copyright owner can licence out their work to third parties, usually in exchange for licence fees or another financial benefit.

When someone expresses an idea in some material form, this is automatically protected by copyright in Australia. Essentially, copyright protects your original expression of ideas, whether this be in writing, a photo or a drawing. So, other people can’t use your IP without your consent or without a licence agreement.
Copyright is only one of the ways you can protect your intellectual property. For businesses, it’s essential to protect your IP as it is integral to your branding, marketing and your position in the market. In addition to copyright protection (for example, in the form of a Copyright Licence Agreement), you could also register a trade mark. This can be done with IP Australia. Protecting your IP is an important step for many businesses – chat to our experienced IP lawyers if you need a hand.
A Copyright Licence Agreement sets out the terms of the Copyright Licence, which often includes the payment terms, licence scope, termination rights and liability protections. Put simply, it sets out the details of the arrangement under which you are licensing your copyrighted material.
A licence is an arrangement that allows other parties to use something from you. It can be seen as ‘legal permission’ to use your property, or in this case, your intellectual property. If someone uses your IP without a licence, this can be seen as a breach of copyright. IP can be a tricky area to navigate, especially in the early stages of your business venture. Our IP lawyers are happy to chat you through your options.
